My oldest son started drum lessons with JD over 10 years ago and successfully Played throughout HS in Selected Bands, Jazz bands and Marching band. When is was time for my middle son to play I had no question where to go. JD is patient and knows how to bring out the best in his students. My almost 25 year old has a life long love of music due in part to his time at JD Drums. And I'm excited that my other boys will have that too.
I have been learning drums for the last 2 years here. I have to say I haven't learn any thing this long at a same place. I give this credit to Elliot and to my drums teacher Rick. Rick doesn't just teaches you drums the way he wanted, he will try to understand your level of interest and tries to enhance the passion of learning drums with his experience and techniques. I sometimes get some songs from my home land to learn the native drum beats, he actually teaches me how to play them immediately at my level, which is awesome. Elliot, the owner is very friendly and tries to make sure every student is happy with their learning experience here. I attend the easy songs nights for adult beginners which will help me learn or get the experience of playing along with others. Elliot organizes these song nights with different kinds of songs every month. I have been to shows or listened to the works from the few guitar and drum teachers from page music, they are very talented people.
I am a beginner in my mid 30s. I've had 3 lessons for guitar so far with George and have learned a lot. Very knowledgeable (Theory, reading music, tab, etc..), patient, helpful, and teaches well. Shows up on time and is communicative. Excited to continue to learn more! Highly recommend!
I couldn’t have asked for anything more In a drum teacher, lessons have been really fun and he helps me learn what I need to learn in a very time efficient way. Couldn’t recommend him more!
Although I don't play the drums, Ian has helped me a lot with vocal techniques. Ian is a really well rounded musician and I would definitely recommend him!
I have taken two piano lessons from Greg to date. He is an excellent teacher who has a great knowledge of the piano. He has an easy manner and patience with beginners, like me. I intend to continue my lessons with him.
Mike is a fantastic instructor - really breaks down the fundamentals for beginners in a very easy to understand way. I would definitely recommend him!
Reyna taught me beginner drum lessons. She's a very skilled and patient teacher. Without being overly critical, she taught me the importance of technique but also managed to keep pushing me to challenge myself learning new beats.
Patrick is an amazing music teacher and has endless patience teaching my 8 and 10 year old guitar and drums. He makes the lessons fun, while still ensuring the kids are making progress. He's an absolute pleasure and I would recommend him to anyone!
Wonderful to work with! very clear and precise in the way he teaches, fantastic person which makes the lessons more comfortable, great drummer.
I took drum lessons privately with Harrison for roughly 3 years. His flexibility in teaching different musical styles has allowed me the chance to learn to play rock, jazz, and everything in between. Every lesson was centered around what I wanted to learn while covering the importance of technique. Taking private lessons with Harrison made it fun to practice for the next week and sparked a passion for playing the drums.
Hilary tutored our then 7 and 5 year old children both in group and private drumming sessions. Hillary is a talented percussionist but it was his ability to impart his knowledge to kids in a way that kept them interested and engaged that stood out for us. Music lessons are often something that must be endured for younger kids but my guys were always excited at the prospect of going to drumming lessons with Hilary! - Randal W
Ben has a good teaching style that works for me. What the path to accomplishment is and how what we're doing today contributes to that/fits into the big picture.
Do you want to learn to play the drums? Do you want to discover the wonderful world of harmony and ear training? Do you already play, but you are looking for advanced concepts? The learning experience is an important step for every musician. Since when I was young, I have been in contact with great artists who taught me to give great importance to what I do. My strength is surely dedication. If you're looking for a teacher who can understand you and can personalize a course for you (both individually and in small groups) based on your level, then you just have to contact me for more info about rates or any other question.
I have been teaching one-on-one lessons for close to 18 years. I am an enthusiastic and creative instructor to all ages and skill levels. For beginning students, I teach the basic mechanics of the instrument, how to read music, and within a month the student will be learning songs of their choice.
I offer 1 hour of beginner or intermediate drum instruction on a full-size drum kit, learning stick control and rhythm, from basic beats to more complex beats as time goes on. Everything is provided, snack and beverage as well. I have about 14 drums and 15 cymbals all ready for you to start. Left- and right-handed drummers don't matter.
I am a Boston based graduate of Berklee College of Music, with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Performance. I create fun and engaging lessons for all ages that are tailored to your specific personalities and needs! I have worked with a wide range of age levels from 7 year olds to adults in their 40s. The skill levels were anywhere from kids just wanting to try drums out, to students wanting an advanced method and perspective on drums and music. I try to cater to the students specific needs and preferences, and find great rewards in the various styles of teaching from beginner to advanced. I love to incorporate listening and transcribing famous beats or songs, as well as songs the students might want to learn. I use a mix of learning from notation and reading, with hearing things by ear as well, to develop a balanced connection between the limbs and ears. I use drum method books for things like 4-way independence in the limbs, and having good technique and control. I also think improvisation is an essential part of music, and I allow students to be free in expressing their musical ideas within the context of a song or groove. This is the most fun for me! One fun method I use is a Call and Response method, to work on memory and critical listening as well. It all depends on the pace that the student is most comfortable with, and maybe if they only want to learn their favorite pop/rock songs, thats fine as well. I just might try incorporating the methods above in a more suitable way for that specific individual.

I have been playing the drums for over 10 years, including performance and recording experience with professional musicians. I recently played drums on an album that has just been signed to Ropeadope Records Label in New York City. I have studied and played at Jazz Workshops at the New York University Steinhardt School of Music and the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I have also been studying with some of the best drummers of their time, including Billy Hart and Bob Moses. I took classes, ensembles, and lessons at the New England Conservatory pre-college, and received the highest level of the jazz certificate at the program when I graduated. I went on to get accepted into New England Conservatory of Music with scholarship to pursue a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Performance. I have performed at many venues such as the Boston Public Library Courtyard, The Hatch Memorial Shell Boston, Symphony Hall, Wally's Jazz Cafe, Renaissance Boston, Smalls Jazz Club NYC, Woodstock Opera House in Chicago and many more. I am an experienced musician with integrity and determination.
